Experts say there is low risk that virus may remain on envelopes or packages and infect people
There’s no evidence that the coronavirus can be spread through mail and parcels, according to the World Health Organisation and US Centres for Disease Control and Prevention.
The entities said on Thursday that Covid-19 is typically spread when people inhale droplets produced by an infected person when they cough or sneeze.
They said the risk that the virus may remain on envelopes or packages and infect people are very low.
However people are advised to wash their hands regularly and avoid touching their face after handling deliveries.
There are currently over 2.1 million confirmed coronavirus cases around the world, 147,512 deaths and 557,596 recoveries.
